Did you know that #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday? This day organizers and non-profit and charitable organizations taking part at this initiative would like to enhance giving primarily by the power of social media and collaboration. On this day individuals can meet several opportunities to get involved in their own communities through voluntary work as well.
In 2018, we announced our annual Carpathian Equal Opportunity Scholarship Programme again, within which framework we were looking for disadvantaged students studying in higher education and living in the region.
We were delighted to receive a large number of excellent applications from candidates. In the end, we chose to support Rostás Ádám, who is studying at Eszterházy Károly University to be a geography and history teacher.
Thanks to our individual donors we could announce the possibility to apply for the Carpathian Equal Opportunities Scholarship Program this year as well. We have been looking for young people in need who study and live in the Hungarian territory of the Carpathian region (Northeast Hungary)
We are delighted that the Carpathian Equal Opportunity Scholarship Program has been announced every year since 2007 and we have supported 35 students since then. Our program has ended for 2016/17, but the application is open for the next academic year.
Briefly, we would like to summarize in a few words the previous scholar’s, Ádám Virág successes and experiences.
Thanks to Frederick C. Robey 's generous support and the tax 1% offers, the Carpathian Foundation-Hungary provides scholarships to disadvantaged students in the 2017/2018 academic year as well.
In the framework of the Scholarship Program we would like to support 1-3 disadvantaged young students who live in the Hungarian territory of the Carpathian region (Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, Hajdú-Bihar, Heves, Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok, Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg megyék), and who are enrolled in the 2017/2018 academic year in any higher educational institutions of the region.
